According to reports, Yahoo recently developed a custom program and searched all mails of its users for US Intelligence Officials. But Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo opened about the company’s transparency report in which it shows documents about Government’s request for the user data.
A Yahoo spokesperson said, ”Yahoo is a law-abiding company and complies with the laws of the United States”. Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union and members of the Congress condemned the surveillance program and called the government order received by Yahoo unconstitutional.
This was not the first time that Yahoo has been accused of providing US Intelligence Agencies with consumer data.
